A day after Osama's death, US President Barak Obama has announced that he will visit Ground Zero in New York to meet the victims of 9/11 terror. Obama marked the anniversary of Sept. 11 at the Pentagon in each of his two years as president until now.

The visit will come several days after Osama bin Laden was killed who is the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks on what was then the World Trade Center.

Bin Laden was killed during a raid on a compound in Pakistan where he had been residing, then buried at sea.

The White House also mentioned that Obama contacted numerous world leaders about bin Laden's death, including counterparts in Mexico, Great Britain, Germany, and Israel.

He was congratulated by many leaders of his courage and success of completing the mission of killing Bin Laden.

Obama's visit to Ground zero was announced by White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer via Twitter.
